Originally written on A Jersey Guy  |  Last updated 10/19/14
She was born in Brooklyn. Went to school at Vassar. But the essence of what she was and became was developed in Millburn, where she developed her acting pedigree. With that as a backdrop, plus the events of last month when she won an Oscar for her performance as Fantine in Les Miserables, Anne Hathaway is our Jersey Guy (Girl) of the Week. Acting in her blood? Well try this, her mother, Kate, played the role of Fantine in the first US Tour of Les Miserables. Anne who turned 30, was a teenage star at productions at Millburn High School and in the local Paper Mill Playhouse. Picking a Jersey Guy of the Week can vary in the degree of difficulty. Many times the selection process is clear cut. Hands down. No question. Picking someone like Bruce Springsteen in any given week is easy. Or Gov. Chris Christie in the aftermath of Super Storm Sandy also is easy. The basic rule of thumb, for selection is also flexible, depending on the circumstances. Generally, the rules used for Jersey Guy of The Week are basic. Anyone connected with the 201 area code (generally regarded as the heart of Jersey Guy mentality) is usually a slam dunk. The old way of dividing the telephone profile in Jersey was  201 was North Jersey (true Jersey) and the 609 area code was South Jersey and more Philly oriented than true Jersey. But now New Jersey, like everywhere else, includes a wide assortment of area codes. Millburn would have been in the 201 area code comfort zone, but is now in the 862 and973 domain. Nevertheless, Hathaway, who according to Wikipedia wanted to be a nun until she was 15, but changed her mind after learning her brother Michael was gay, fits in any area code. The one time devout Catholic changed her religious stance. “I realized my older brother was gay and I couldn’t support a religion that didn’t support my brother,”’ said Hathaway as way of explaining her decision. She now says her religious beliefs are “a work in progress”. which is good enough for us and good enough to make her our Jersey Girl of the  Week.
